Latics' Everton loanee Antonee Robinson could be out for as long as four weeks following an ankle injury in training with the US Men's National Team this week.

Robinson and his team mates were preparing for Thursday night's friendly against England at Wembley Stadium when the full back's strain occurred, a match he will now miss, along with the USA's scheduled fixture against Italy next Tuesday.

The 21-year-old will remain with the USA squad until after Thursday's match at Wembley, before returning to the Wigan Athletic Training Centre in Euxton for his recovery.

Elsewhere on the international scene, Samy Morsy and his Egypt team mates will no longer be facing UAE on Tuesday 20 November, with the match postponed.

Latics' England Under 17 duo of Joe Gelhardt and Jensen Weir are set for action this afternoon (Wednesday 14 November) against Czech Republic in their final match of a mini-tournament in Ireland. England head into the fixture with a win over Republic of Ireland and a 2-2 draw with Germany so far.
